Weehawken 1800 Groundbreaking by Darren Chang

Weehawken 1800 had its groundbreaking ceremony on August 12 2019. This is a project I have been working on as the owner’s VP of design and project manager for the past year and half. With unobstructed view of Manhattan skyline and the Hudson River, a unique design language, and desirable location (5-min ferry ride to Hudson Yard), this nearly-300 unit high-end condominium will be a piece of gem along the Gold Coast.
